EMC releases findings on the impact of IT in the Philippine enterprise market

EMC today released its findings of a survey that asked IT decision makers in Philippines for their perspective on IT’s role as an enabler of business change during the shift towards the mega trends of cloud, mobile, social and Big Data. The impact of the mega trends has fundamentally changed the expectations of consumers and end-users who increasingly want to interact online, anytime, and from anywhere.

The EMC Forum Survey reveals that in the Philippines, IT is now viewed as a strategic enabler to grow business and better connect with customers. The top three areas where these trends will have an impact are in: improving customer experience (51%), management of mission-critical business operations (41%) and building new products and services (38%).

Organizations are increasingly moving to the cloud, with 67% now agreeing that combining public and private cloud can improve security and agility. However, barriers will need to be overcome to achieve full potential.

Businesses today are challenged to cut operational costs and legacy processes, react faster to find more growth, and balance risk. With this in mind, a new IT agenda is to be set in motion by these businesses such as providing access to all applications and data through mobile devices, use agile development to build new customer-centric applications, build a data lake to deliver insights and applications on all data, move to a software-defined data center infrastructure and expand it to a hybrid cloud, and use adaptive, data-driven security to rapidly respond to emerging threats.

Note: This survey does not encompass the entire Philippine market, but it does paint the picture of how Philippine businesses are using information technology.
